“All roads lead to Rome”. I’m sure you have heard that expression. It’s one I use a lot in my sessions. It means different paths can take one to the same goal. There are many reasons for wanting to get into therapy. There are many forms of therapy that lead to healing, and there are many different understandings of what “healing” means. To me, healing is mostly about becoming one with ourselves, maybe for the first time.

My specialization in therapy is trauma and addiction. Often, a common road to addictions is having a history of trauma. A goal in healing involves movement toward abstinence from the substance or process, reducing the internal pain that drives us away from ourselves and others, and learning how to safely rejoin ourselves and others.
